How to apply
Please read through the application form carefully and follow the instructions given for each section. Please ensure that you complete all sections fully and return the entire form.
Please note, the equality information you give on the first two pages is requested for monitoring purposes. This information is confidential, it will be separated from your application form and will only be referred to after the short listing has been completed.
The additional information section of the application form is your opportunity to demonstrate your suitability for the role that you are applying for. Use this space to explain why you are interested in the post, giving examples of the qualities and skills you have which are relevant. It is essential to relate your experience (paid or unpaid) to the person specification and job description in this section to enable the short listing managers to assess your suitability for the role.
We do not accept CVs but if you wish to enclose any additional sheets with your application, please feel free to do so where necessary.
Please make a note of the job closing date. Applications received after the closing time and date will not be accepted.
In accordance with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996, we require new members of staff to provide documentary evidence that they are legally entitled to work in the UK. If you are invited to an interview, you will be asked to bring this evidence with you together with certificates for any relevant qualifications and training you have stated on your application from.
All candidates are asked to declare criminal convictions. A criminal conviction is not necessarily a bar to employment. If you have declared a criminal conviction this will only be considered if you are selected for interview. If the interview panel believe this may have a bearing on the requirements of the post, this will be discussed further with you.
All positions involving contact with service users will require a criminal records check from the Criminal Records Bureau under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. However, possession of a criminal record, either current or spent, will not necessarily prohibit an offer of employment.
We prefer application forms to be submitted by email to HR@elimhousing.co.uk and we will reply to confirm receipt of the application. This email address is for job applicants only and should not be used by recruitment agencies.
Although it is not our preference, we will also accept postal applications if necessary to our Head Office as follows:

Units 3&4 Pinkers Court
Briarlands Office Park

We are unable to acknowledge receipt of applications received in the post and we will not accept postal applications if they are received after the closing date.
